Book finished: S Is For Silence

I just finished #19 S Is For Silence by Sue Grafton. I rate it a 6.
Thirty-four yeas ago, Violet Sullivan put on her party finery and left for the annual Fourth of July fireworks display. She was never seen again.
In the small California town of Serena Station, tongues wagged. Some said she’d run off with a lover. Some said she was murdered by her husband.
But for the not-quite-seven-year-old- daughter Daisy she left behind, her absence has never been explained or forgotten.
Now, thirty-four years later, she wants the solace of closure.
This is another book that keeps switching to the past every few chapters. You go from what happened in 1953 to what is currently happening to the Kinsey Millhone and back again.

I'm currently reading Starship Troopers and #2 The Usurper's Crown by Sarah Zettel which should actually be #1. I'm having a very hard time with this book because I already know what's going to happen. This is a series that should be read in chronological order not in the publishing order. I already know what happens in #2 because of reading #1 & #3.
Back in Aug. when I was reading the Sharon Shinn Samaria novels, I thought I'd have a hard time with
Angelica because it was also a prequel. Susannah's Tale had been talked about in the first three books so I figured that it would be a very boring book. It wasn't, I enjoyed it as much as I did #1 Archangel. She went into much more detail with her story and changed several things around which can be explained by how oral history isn't always accurate! The Usurper's Crown doesn't really seem to do that.
